The Indo-European Controversy: Facts and Fallacies in Historical Linguistics

By Asya Pereltsvaig and Martin W. Lewis

This book "asserts that the origin and spread of languages must be examined primarily through the time-tested techniques of linguistic analysis, rather than those of evolutionary biology" and "defends traditional practices in historical linguistics while remaining open to new techniques, including computational methods" and "will appeal to readers interested in world history and world geography."


Book Information

   

Title: Intonation (Second Edition)
Written By: Alan Cruttenden
URL: http://www.cup.org/order.html
Description:

When published in 1986, this book was the first to survey intonation in all
its aspects, both in English and universally. In this updated edition,
while the basic descriptive facts of the form and use of intonation are
presented in the British nuclear tone tradition, there is nevertheless
extensive comparison with other theoretical frameworks, in particular with
the ToBI framework, which has become widespread in the United States. The
author has expanded the sections on historical background, different
theoretical approaches and sociolinguistic variation.
